2286927 - Journal entry when the consolidation method changes - FC


  • Issue when a manual journal entry is posted on a reporting unit which changes from consolidation method  : Opening method= EM(Equity Method) and Closing Method = FC(Full Consolidation) or Opening method= FC and Closing Method = EM.
  • If the manual journal entry is posted without any restriction (Journal entry currency of the audit ID  = 0 or 1) on any movement flow, the manual journal entry is automatically reversed by the consolidation engine on flow ”F02 – Change in consolidation method - Old” (and on flow “F04 – Change in consolidation rate” if the consolidation rate applies to the audit ID).
  • It is not possible to impact the closing flow on that period.
